11. Australian National University - Research School of Earth SciencesSince January 2008 the Research School of Earth Sciences (RSES) incorporates the former Department of Earth and Marine Sciences of the Faculty of Science and now provides teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, and higher degree research programs within a world-class institution. The Research School now has two locations. The main administration and much of the research facilities are housed in the Jaeger Building (Building 61). Teaching activities are concentrated at the D.A. Brown Building (Building 47), which is about 10 minutes away by foot. A new building is planned for completion at the beginning of 2012 in the Jaeger complex, which will enable co-location of all RSES activities.
ANU GeoSciences has been rated as the top university program in Australia and in the top ten of its class in the world. RSES is a leader in research into the physics, chemistry, material properties and environmental conditions of the Earth. RSES offers a variety of opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. We also provide great research projects, with well-supported scholarships for living expenses and travel opportunities.
12. Australian National University - Research School of Physics and EngineeringThe Research School of Physics and Engineering represents Australia's largest university based research and teaching activity in the physics discipline. The School is home to a number of major national facilities such as Australia's largest accelerator and the H1-NF National Stellarator Facility. Hundreds of academics, technical staff and students form the School's greatest asset, its people. This critical mass of researchers is of fundamental importance in fostering the kind of interdisciplinary interactions that create modern research excellence. A testament to the Schools success is its involvement in four ARC Centres of Excellence and its hosting of three Australian research networks.
The underlying impetus of our research is a belief in the fundamental importance of physics to all of Science and technology and the key role physics must play in addressing the challenges facing the modern world. For example, in addressing climate change, we must better understand the physics of the atmosphere and develop new clean sources of energy. In medicine, further development of new procedures, such as positron therapy for cancer treatment, will not be possible without advancing the basic physics that underlies them. The communications revolution that is changing the world is driven by physics, and if progress is to continue, research must harness advances in electronic materials, lasers and optoelectronic devices.
There is no better place to study and research physics than The Research School of Physics and Engineering at The Australian National University.
13. Basel University - Department of PhysicsSince the late 17th century, physics is an active area of research and teaching at the University of Basel, which was founded in 1460 (www.unigeschichte.unibas.ch). Among the most illustrious to hold a chair in physics in Basel was 18th century Physicist and Mathematician Daniel Bernoulli, famous for his theory of hydrodynamics and the Bernoulli principle, of critical use in aerodynamics. Short history of our physics department.
Today, our focus of research is Nano physics as well as Astro/Nuclear/Particle physics. With our numerous active research groups we have been able to attract the following major centers to our Department:
- National Competence Center of Research (NCCR) in Quantum Science and Technology (Basel co-Leading House, ETH Zurich Leading House)
- Swiss NanoScience Institute (SNI), National Competence Center of Research (NCCR) in Nanoscale Science
- Basel QC2 Center for Quantum Computation and Quantum Coherence.
We understand the term Nano (and Nano physics) as a very broad collection of diverse research that all merges in one way or another at the nanometer scale, uniting not only various research efforts within physics but also activities in chemistry, biology and medical research.
Research at our Department includes internationally renowned condensed matter theory & quantum computation groups, highly acclaimed Astro / Nuclear & Particle Physics Theory and Experiments, world leading scanning probe research groups (STM, AFM, MFM, FAMARS, Cantilever Sensors) as well as groups performing cutting edge experiments in molecular electronics, nanomechanics, quantum atom optics, nano-photonics, quantum transport and more....
Though we are a rather small institute (with currently 12 departmental chairs plus 3 associated professorships), we enjoy an excellent reputation on an international level and are very well cited in the scientific community, with an average of 24.53 citations per paper on place 5 (sorted by citations per paper) among all physics departments with more than 1000 publications, as ranked by Essential Science Indicators (ESI), Web of Science (pdf). See also the table with selected entries below (January 2012). Note that our ranking improved from place 7 in January 2011 to rank 5! (previous ranking, pdf)

17. California Institute of Technology (CALTECH) - Division of Chemistry and Chemical EngineeringChemistry is the Science of change, and chemists and chemical engineers are involved not just in understanding, but in changing the material world around us. Whether it is through new chemistry for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, new technologies for energy conversion, or new approaches to environmental protection, the chemical Sciences affect modern life in countless and important ways.
The chemical Sciences and engineering have critical roles to play in making the advances we need in developing alternative energy strategies, in discovering new medicines and diagnostic tools, and in bettering our environment. In each of these efforts, synthetic chemists, physical chemists, biochemists and chemical engineers will be required to develop the new tools, new molecules, new materials and new processes that are essential for revolutionary advance. Strategic areas for research in the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering include (i) energy and sustainability; (ii) atmospheric chemistry and climate change; (iii) biological circuitry; (iv) nanomaterials for functional design; and (v) theory. CCE is home to more than 40 professors and three degree programs. The Faculty's students and post-doctoral colleagues have access to many educational resources, as well as opportunities for both basic and applied research.
18. California Institute of Technology (Caltech) - Environmental Science and EngineeringThe Environmental Science and Engineering (ESE) program reaches across traditional disciplinary boundaries in its aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of our complex environment and offer efficient and effective engineering solutions to environmental problems. Students in ESE receive a broad education and carry out research addressing some of the grand Science and engineering challenges of our times:
19. California Institute of Technology (Caltech) - Materials ScienceMaterial Science broadly encompasses the fundamental study of solid matter with the goal of engineering new materials with superior properties, and ultimately enabling altogether new types of devices. Historically, materials Science focussed on metallurgical and ceramic systems, and the state of technological achievement of ancient (European) societies has been described in terms of materials – the stone age, the bronze age and the iron age. In the modern era, Material Science makes use of advanced fabrication and characterization tools that allow us to observe and manipulate matter virtually atom by atom.
The field is inherently interdisciplinary, with strong connections to physics, chemistry, biology and the engineering fields. Materials scientists tackle such problems as the discovery of efficient electrolytes and electrodes for batteries and fuel cells (for sustainable energy), the design of nanoscale structures that can use light for communication (photonics), and the fabrication of high strength metals free of traditional failure modes (bulk metallic glass). In each case, tackling such problems requires fundamental thermodynamic and kinetic insights to answer the question: why do materials behave the way they do?
20. California Institute of Technology - Division of BiologyWelcome to the web pages of the Division of Biology at the California Institute of Technology. In its history of more than 75 years, the division has provided many of the major research advances that have made biology the premier Science of the 21st century, and has trained many of the world’s most eminent biologists. The division at present has 38 professors of various ranks, who in their classes and laboratories have approximately 100 undergraduates, 100 graduate students, and 160 postdoctoral scholars, as well as more than 250 staff members. We occupy parts or all of seven buildings on the Caltech campus; we also operate a marine laboratory 50 miles from campus. Each building is devoted to state-of-the-art educational facilities and cutting-edge laboratories.
We have three major research emphases: Structural, Molecular and Cell Biology; Developmental and Regulatory Biology; and Molecular, Cellular and Integrative NeuroScience. In each area we are trying to solve one of the great problems of modern biology: How do the proteins and other components of cells interact to provide a marvelous nanomachine of more than 100,000 integrated parts, a machine that has numerous extraordinary functions and can reproduce itself? How does a single cell become, by division and formation of new cell types, an entire multicellular organism, which in the case of humans has thousands of different cell types and more than 1 trillion different cells in specific places, communicating to form complex organs? How does the brain, the most complex organ of all, work to allow calculations beyond those of any computer, as well as to demonstrate amazing sensory capabilities, emotions, and consciousness?
The pages in this site give in detail the research program of each of our laboratories, lists of our recent publications, and include the most recent version of our division's annual report, with a summary of the work of each of our students, postdocs, and faculty. If you are a high-school student looking for a university to attend, an undergraduate looking for a graduate school, a graduate looking for a postdoctoral position, or a postdoc looking for a faculty position, you have come to the right place. We are embarked on a grand adventure. We hope you'll be able to join us.
